Note that doctest has the same kind of potential problem with matching ellipsis (0 or more characters) in expected output blocks.  Backtracking isn't needed at all to resolve patterns of that limited kind, but I don't think Python's re module supports enough gimmicks to disable backtracking.

So instead doctest has its own

_ellipsis_match()

function to do it in worst-case linear time.
